Lindsey was born and raised in Nederland, Texas. After graduating from Nederland High School she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Science from Texas A&M University. After teaching Integrated Physics and Chemistry at Nederland High School, Lindsey decided to go to law school. Lindsey earned her J.D. in law from South Texas College of Law in 2006 and then went to work as a Prosecutor for the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office. Over the next eight years, Lindsey tried cases in every criminal court in the Jefferson County courthouse and practiced in front of every criminal Judge. She has a vast array of experience in handling misdemeanor and felony criminal cases. Lindsey tried nearly 100 criminal cases as lead attorney before leaving the District Attorney’s office in 2014.
In 2014 Lindsey was appointed by Governor Rick Perry to be the first ever female District Judge in Jefferson County. She was appointed Judge of the 252nd Criminal District court where she presided over many trials. Lindsey made the decision not to seek another term as Judge but instead to leave the bench and open her own practice doing criminal defense. Since then, Lindsey has devoted her practice to defending DWIs and other intoxicated related offenses.
Lindsey has a special interest in the science behind the breath and blood testing in DWI cases, and has taken measures to educate herself in these areas so that she can effectively fight against these tests. She believes that even with a breath or blood test, you can still fight and win a DWI. She also adamantly believes that not everyone who is charged with this crime is guilty of this crime. Lindsey’s father and brother both work at refineries in the Port Arthur, Texas. Thus, she is familiar with the consequences of working at a refinery, or having a TWIC card, and getting a DWI conviction. These things along with her personal experiences, motivated her to devote her practice solely to fighting intoxication cases.
